RALEIGH — NC Museum of Art hosts first solo museum exhibition of the visual art of Scott Avett, founding member of the Avett Brothers band.
On exhibit through Feb. 2, 2020, Scott Avett: I N V I S I B L E includes large-scale portraits, prints, and paintings.
“I’m not anything first—not painter, musician, writer, printmaker, performer—before I am an artist,” said Avett, who holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from East Carolina and lives in Concord. “I’m always thinking in visual terms. Even when I’m writing, I’m thinking visually, and I feel like everything trickles down from that. This body of work was made over a 20-year span. These are snapshots from my life as it moves and changes, all from the view of my conscience.”
Scott Avett: I N V I S I B L E features psychologically charged and emotionally intense portraits focused on his family and himself—often intimate, vulnerable, and sometimes uncomfortably truthful portrayals.
